Every year the Department of Educational Research invites international speakers to visit the department and to work with students and colleagues. These visitors reflect the work in our three research centres:Centre for Higher Education and Evaluation, Centre for Technology-Enhanced Learning and the Centre for Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education.
This one day symposium will include keynotes from each of our visitors as well as rich opportunities for debate and discussion around the conference theme. The theme - Research, teaching and learning across disciplinary frontiers - has been chosen to encompass diverse aspects of the academic role and the ways in which we contribute to society.
This symposium will be important for everyone involved in researching, teaching or learning:
· In interdisciplinary teams;
· Carrying out interdisciplinary research;
· Interested in exploring their own academic practice and that of their colleagues;
· Interested in the nature and purpose of higher education more generally.
The keynotes will address both issues involved in interdisciplinary research, teaching and learning and provide examples of interdisciplinarity at work. The emphasis will be on a critical examination of interdisciplinarity.
Full details can be found on our International Visitors' Week Website.
